I am beginning to realize that it’s not always the obvious pieces that make a look, but rather the peripheral, subtle ones that pull it together. That will be the underlying basis of this post~
Etnia Barcelona gets me. I was sent a pair from their Wild Love in Africa Collection–the styles are insane! The colors and prints on the sunglasses are inspired by the wildlife in Africa, evoking images of muted nature and wild animals (think zebra, giraffe, lions). I am obsessed with mine and ever since I received them, my other sunglasses have picked up quite a bit of dust…
As for the sneakers-n-skirt look here, the sporty feminine trend is hardly new but what is new are these sneaker adornments. The shoe charms from Miscere instantly add an element of cool chic to the traditional white sneaker (or to any other color sneaker for that matter). I have the Stan Smiths (basic, ik) with green zig zags on the side to somewhat distinguish them from the classic ones. That still didn’t do it. They still felt kind of run-of-the-mill until I added some shoe charms to the laces and replaced the white tongues with denim ones. There’s an idea if you want to elevate your classic white sneaker!
Starting a new section on my blog called “Fave Finds” where you can easily locate the products that I’m into right now. If you know me, you know I’m a product junkie. But I’m also very finicky and particular about what I like and dislike. I value quality but I am also a sucker for details like packaging, design, and colors. Fine craftsmanship does not go unnoticed with me 🙂 I’ll try to do this type of post once a month or at least once a season to share with you guys a roundup of my new finds. For this post, I chose a variety of products that I’ve been very much using and enjoying this summer..<3
Here they are!
Also..Huge shoutout to Coco & Duckie, the ultimate hotspot for curated luxury items, from stationery to jewelry to bath & body. A good number of the pieces from this post are from there because of my newfound love for this chic purveyor. It’s the little things that get me…
Shop // Watermelon, Popcorn, Macaron, Snapchat Ghosts
I neeeed iPhone cases that are protective and clear. Protective because my last case from Skinnydip (in pink and silver, but sold out) was honestly so beautiful, with floating stars and glitter (endless compliments and a great distraction at long and tedious school assemblies) but no bumpers 🙁 I cracked my phone three times with it on and ended up having to buy a new phone when the phone screen eventually shattered into a million pieces. So, there’s that. Transparency is needed, too– What is the point of getting the new rose gold color if I couldn’t even showcase (no pun intended) it. So, gocase became my new friend once I got a brand spanking new phone. It has cases that are not only clear, but have bumpers AND catchy designs. V v thankful for these phone cases, def going back for more.
Fujifilm Instax Share SP-1
This is so so handy. It’s true that its predecessor, The Fujifilm Instax 8, has a cool retro and vintage look to it and has therefore been a huge hit amongst the Polaroid-loving set but, let’s face it, it is a bit inconvenient compared to the SP-1. This one can print Polaroids right from your iPhone!! Now what is better than that…? Instead of trying to get the perfect shot at the most opportune moment (not to mention, you have to lug it around with you wherever you go), you can take as many pics as you want and print any photo, whenever, straight from your phone. Function trumps form, hands down.
Lace is in (was it ever out?)! I paired the two-toned Sandro Exil lace box top with a high-waisted vintage black suede skirt. And speaking of lace, did you notice my lace-ups? 😉 I copped this 2″ block-heeled pair from Zara last fall (They were practically sold out everywhere and it took me forever to find these!) and cannot stop wearing them.
UPDATE to the blog…I was originally going to devote a whole blog post to new updates but tbh that seemed unnecessary when I can begin including them at the end of all of my outfit posts! So here it is —
There is now a “Wishlist” page tab on my blog. Click on it and you can shop all of the items that I have been eyeing recently. It will be updated regularly so do stay on the prowl for that..From beauty products to sneakers, there will be a range of products for you to peruse~~
